Little Scientist Week

Space Out!

March 12 - 17

For kids 5 & younger!

Your budding scientist will explore the wonders of space during this special week dedicated to our littlest learners, kindergarten age and younger. 

With their eyes on the stars, your astronomer-in-training will explore how craters are made on the moon, and then create their own. Their natural engineering skills will be put to use by constructing a paper rocket, and then they will send it soaring into the sky with a stomp! Your little scientist will investigate air pressure and cloud formation as they create clouds in bottles. Gravity comes to life as your mini-Newtons investigate gravity with a gravity well.

Little Scientist Week activities are free with admission to the science center. For more information, please call 419.244.2674.
